I am afraid of the darkness, but not the dark.
The darkness pushes back the Light. Allowing sorrow, pain and discomfort to steal joy from your mind.
I try to push it back. Hoping to gain back my Light.
The dark does not scare me because my Light knows it is harmless. It takes merely the flick of a modern switch to drive the dark away.
The Darkness brings out evils and torment.
It lives and thrives in the soul.
Mocking your sorrow.
Laughing at the pain you have endured.
Only love of life, love of family and the love of a true soulmate can push back the Darkness.
I pray someday we will evolve to the point where Darkness is no longer.
Until then, I remain – Dann, just as I am.
Surrounded by the Darkness and wishing it were merely “The Dark”.
But, it is not – it has gripped my heart, my soul and my life in ugly arms.
And whispered in my ear,
“NO SOUP FOR YOU”
